365 Project Week 22

First picture is a cousin picture from our race day cookout. This is one of the only times we see the Suttner side of the family, and most of the kids were at my aunt's house this year. So I made my mom gather the kids together and this was one of the best I got!

On Memorial Day, we had friends over for a cookout. It was a lot of fun! But since I was putting the boys in cute shirts, I wanted to get a few pictures of them before everyone got there. Henry sat for me for a minute, but Holden was not interested. I need someone to come do a real session with my kids! I was so frustrated...sigh.

Tuesday they sat in their little beach chairs and had their glasses on, but when I ran for the camera, they moved on! So I got this instead, of them checking out the "buggies" on their slide and on their hands.

Wednesday I just snapped a quick shot of Henry throwing the ball, part of his new favorite game. He doesn't come anywhere CLOSE to the other person's mitt thing but he laughs every time!

Roses blooming in the front! First one that opened.

I love these yellow flowers in the back. They have really spread over the years and are so pretty! My Gran used to call them "little yella flowers" so I don't know what their real name even is. :) I took a ton of shots and so few of them turned out. Flowers are a fun subject but it's still hard to see if anything looks good until you get to the camera.

Saturday was hot and we played outside! Henry in the playhouse, and Holden in the pool. It was the first time we got our little pool out for the season and we had a fun time.


  1. Loving the pictures of the boys...absolutely adorable. And that stool, I'm in love with it. Green is my favorite, too! ;o) Beautiful flower shots!! I love those yellow flowers!!

    1. Thanks, Miranda! Stool is from Hobby Lobby...couldn't resist it! :) I need to get back to commenting again, it's so nice of you to comment all the time. I do check your page out often, though! :)

  2. Hi Leah! Your boys are so cute and your pictures are great!! I found your blog through the link-up at Click It Up a Notch. My husband and I are in the process of creating a new feature at The Albums to help our members begin and finish a Project 365.

    I was wondering…since you have made it so far in your Project 365 what's one piece of advice you would tell someone about to embark on one?

    Thanks so much!

    1. Hi, thanks for commenting! Should I reply here, or on your site? I'm sure I have LOTS of tips, maybe I should do a post on it! I guess mainly I just told myself I couldn't quit...there was no reason I couldn't pick up a camera once a day! I've gotten behind on posting but still take a picture every day. And the other (related) tip would be not to be too hard on yourself either, if you skip a day once in a while, it's a long year! :)

  3. Hello again, Leah! We are going to do a blog post or two on starting a successful Project 365 - would it be ok if we quote you and link to your project?

    P.S. We just started an Instagram account with daily photo prompts if you are ever looking for some inspiration!

  4. And THANK YOU for your wonderful advice!!
